I capture the British natural world, chiefly insects and birds but very soon to be fish! I draw the original in black ink, pencil and gouache for accuracy and an authentic feel.
Raising a smile. With so many people embracing nature again, I feel honoured to be able to draw from real life so that anyone can hold a piece of the natural world without harming the source. Transferring those drawings onto glassware, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and of course paper and cards, is an absolute joy.
Claire Vaughan Designs - An observer of the natural world. I create every design that I sell and if I don't manufacture in-house I only work with British and ethical suppliers.
As a British designer of homeware and gifts, we create china, linen, glassware, cards, prints and much all capturing the beauty of nature through my detailed art. We’re proud to sell our work to organisations such as RHS, Natural England and UK wildlife trusts.
